Values & To Do Lists: Distractions!

Distractions

Sometimes when we’re deciding what goes into the round filing cabinet (the bin, my fave filing cabinet!) – and what gets DONE first, it’s the squeaky wheel that gets our attention and the values-driven tasks can get outsqueaked. So the boss hammering us to finish a project may just sound louder than the cries of your baby.

Yes I know it’s a dilemma that doesn’t have easy answers. We make compromises all the way through our lives. In hindsight some compromises sit well, and some leave us with regret.

Just like a new dad, we have all made decisions that assume there’ll be time later. Many couples building a career at times can make a decision that career comes first. The first decision to tear yourself away from a family or partner commitment in favour of your work is often an agonising one. Unfortunately, they get easier from then on.
